WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Thursday to you! Your First Alert Forecast opens with fresh northerly breezes. Enjoy fair skies, low rain chances, reasonable humidity levels, daytime high temperatures in the 80s, and nighttime lows in the 60s for Thursday into Friday. And in the 83-degree surf: expect one to three-foot breakers to harbor a low to moderate rip current risk.

In the tropics: Larry has a fine environment to grow into a powerful Atlantic hurricane. Expect enhanced swell and rip current activity by next week, though a break in a high pressure ridge should ultimately provide the storm itself a path to curve away from North America. Please stay focused and prepared in any case:
